The Chronicle. SATURDAY, MARCH 3, 1877. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 3 March 1877
SATURDAY, AiARCH 3, 1877. -4---- Is Mr. BERRY sane or insane? Has he the feelings of a gentleman, or even of a man? Would any man, who had any respect for himself, lie under the imputation of treachery to his party a single day, without resenting it? Seeing that so fair an opportunity was afforded him at the Lillydale meeting on Tuesday evening last of replying to the charges of Mr. G. P. SMITH against him at Hawthorn, would any man, with the smallest sense of honor have acted, as Mr. BERRY did, in allowing such an opportunity to slip? Mr. SMITH's charge against Mr. BERRY is, that he offered to sell the "liberals" in August, 1875, and serve under Sir JAMES M'CULLOCH, whom he now so roundly abuses, in connexion with Mr. MACPHERSON, Mr. G. P. SMITH, and Mn. Puavas, and he allows judgment to go by default. There could be no shuffling out of this charge, as there was, in endeavor at least, in Sir CHARLES MAcMAHno?s case, by alleging that the word "corrupt" did not mean "corrupt," and he...

MILK AS AN ABSORBENT. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 3 March 1877
MILK AS AN ABSORBENT. According to the extensive investiga tions of Di. Batlard, contagious germs resist an undetermined amount of heat. The hot water of the laundry has not prevented the propagation of scarlet-fever poison from infected clothes to those from healthy sources; these, on being being returned to their owners, have pro pagated the malady. It will be seen, then, how important it is that dairy utensils be cleansed with water known to be pure and free from any corrupting influence of sewage or filthy surroundings. As cold weather approaches, a practice, quite too common in the country, occurs for setting milk for cream in the kitchen pantry; indeed, not unfrequently, we have seen it placed on racks directly in the kitchen, where all the steam from cooking, as well as the breath and emana tions of those living in the room, are absorbed by the milk. This state of things we have observed more especially in cheese-making districts, where, from the habit of sending milk to the ...
